Directions

  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 13x9-inch baking dish with some of the butter.
  3. Stir tomatoes, cream of celery soup, and capers together in the prepared dish.
  4. Bake tomato mixture in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Stir orzo into the tomato mixture.
  5. Melt remaining butter with olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season cod with salt and pepper; fry in the butter mixture until browned, about 90 seconds per side. Transfer browned cod to the baking dish. Pour any drippings from the skillet over the cod fillets. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the cod.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes.

Wasn't sure about the cheese on Cod but it worked! The Orzo could use more salt maybe even a bit of chili pepper flakes.. a little bland for my liking buy Connie, my wife, first this out of her mouth after the first bite went in, was "OMG this is good!" She gave it 5 stars I gave it 3... so we averaged it out to a strong 4 star recipe.

This is great. I followed the other reviewer's advice and added some crushed red papper, and the little bit of heat was a nice touch. Next time I will add more cheese over the top of the dish. It melted nicely with the rice and tomatoes. This is a very comforting meal.
